Telehealth During the Pandemic
Amidst a global pandemic that has taken loved ones from their families, taken us away from our commuting routines and patients, and has literally encapsulated us in our homes, the opportunity to utter the words “post-pandemic” feels like a momentary relief. This relief is then followed by questions and reflections about what life will look like returning to our new “normal”, how we will continue to challenge historical inequities in mental health care, how to address worries about the health risks of returning while there is still a pandemic, what to do about vicarious trauma and clinician burnout, and simultaneously confronting a concurrent racial pandemic. As vaccines become more accessible to the public in the coming months, anxiety and relief seem to go hand-in-hand as clinicians and clients ponder on returning to in-person in the near future.
